Review : Ten by Gretchen McNeil

“SHHHH!Don’t spread the word!Three-day weekend. Party at White Rock House on Henry Island.You do NOT want to miss it.
It was supposed to be the weekend of their lives—an exclusive house party on Henry Island. Best friends Meg and Minnie each have their reasons for being there (which involve T.J., the school’s most eligible bachelor) and look forward to three glorious days of boys, booze and fun-filled luxury. But what they expect is definitely not what they get, and what starts out as fun turns dark and twisted after the discovery of a DVD with a sinister message: Vengeance is mine. Suddenly people are dying, and with a storm raging, the teens are cut off from the outside world. No electricity, no phones, no internet, and a ferry that isn’t scheduled to return for two days. As the deaths become more violent and the teens turn on each other, can Meg find the killer before more people die? Or is the killer closer to her than she could ever imagine?”

  
This book was wayyyy better than I expected. It was fun and entertaining. The storyline was not very original, seen it many times before, but it was well-done. It kept me guessing until the very end, i always love the whole “one of us is the killer” aspect in a horror story. Some parts of the plot were pretty obvious and it drived me crazy that the characters didn’t see it. The main mystery was still very interesting and I really wanted to know who the killer was. I like the characters, well, most of them anyway. Meg is smart and i really like her as a narrator. i didn’t understand her friendship with Minnie. That girl was awful, just awful and annoying and so freaking stupid, i just don’t know why Meg would keep being friend with that girl. i enjoy the writing, even if it was nothing fantastic, easy to follow and overall pretty good. The setting of the island adds a creepy aspect to the story, i really like it.

This book was pretty good, quick and entertaining.
